Angel Vancouver has the largest selection in Vancouver of the Bacelona-based Desigual clothing line for men, women and kids. We recently received a new Desigual shipment that included a number of fall coats and sweaters for women, plus Desigual shoes, boots and some colourful rain boots.
Angel also specializes in custom hand-painted shirts. I’m now taking orders for Christmas. Locally made, painted by hand. You won’t find these shirts anywhere else in the world except at Angel Vancouver. We ship worldwide.
